    545 25......so, I changed out the DEF filter a few months back. Amber light never really went away......it just pops up occasionally. Pops up, then goes away or doesn't. No rhyme or reason for it to pop up or go away. That's why I thought I had a problem with my instrument cluster. The fuel gauge will go from full to empty and back again for no particular reason. I just figured I had gremlins in my instrument cluster.

    Cop answers call to lady roadside, Been raped...
    Questioning reveals it was truck driver...
    Yes, I was looking under the hood and this truck driver came up;
    jammed the hood down, pinning me and raped me...
    Mam, If you were pinned under the hood, how do you know it was
    a truck driver? You obviously could not have seen his features.
    Cause he had a great big belt buckle and a very short p***s.

    Ground problem. Vibration, torque of dash while turning, or rough road
    or any combination there of.

    Sometimes its to be sure you have evidence of any change,
    of their address for inheritance reasons. Insurance companies
    don't put any extra effort in seeking beneficiaries for pay out.
    Take this opportunity to update any changed address on your
    life policies.

    I was working on an exterior switched plug that had a 3 foot pigtail, instead of a wall socket... It was a 480V 50amp 3 phase line. Well I was absolutely certain I had killed the breaker for that line, and had begun disassembling the plug. I had the shielding pulled down the cord and was in the process of loosening the retaining screws that secure the wires into the contacts. Well, I went to roll the plug over in my hand, when I crossed 2 of the 3 phases... Apparently I had NOT killed the breaker. It grabbed ahold and bit me good. It felt like it took 10,000 micro steps to cover that 3 feet before the plug pulled from my hand. Probably had current through me for nearly 2 seconds. Its a good thing I had just emptied my bladder, cause I'm sure I'd have pee'd my pants otherwise. Had a small electrical burn, about the size of a dime, on the palm of my hand for over a month afterward. Once I didnt have current passing through my body, I sat down in the dirt and contemplated the necessity of electricity... I ultimately decided I would rather not shovel several hundred ton of fertilizer by hand each day, I could learn to deal with this thing called high voltage.

    Not old, yet anyway... But I'll bet I can drive that old Mack better than most can drive a new auto shift... Does that count for anything?

    Means you are able to cut a trail with anything that has gears.
    Taught our 3 daughters to drive a stick shift when they got licenses.
    I told them;some where, some time, you may be at the scene of an
    accident. The only thing left running or movable is stick. You can go
    for/or take to medical help. It is a sad feeling to be helpless in such
    a situation.
